• Question 1
45 seconds
Q.

What is the difference between a flowchart and pseudocode?

A flowchart is diagramatic whilst pseudocode is written in a programming language (eg. Pascal, Java, Visual Basic).

A flowchart is textual whilst pseudocode is diagrammatic.

A flowchart is a diagrammatic description of an algorithm whilst pseudocode is a textual description of an algorithm.

Fowchart and pseudocode are representations of algorithms.
